, actually, was even the clintons' lawyer before his wife rita became the white house correspondent -- it's all a little intertwined here in washington at times -- and he was also my husband's attorney and agent. and that was probably the primary reason why i went to bob, in addition to him being such a good agent, good attorney. c-span: how long have you been married to bob woodward? >> guest: i've been married to bob since 1989. we started living together in 1982. i met him when i was a baby. i was 23 years old, he was 37. so we've been together for 13 years. c-span: what influence has he had on this style of journalism here that you've used? >> guest: a remarkable influence. i mean, he would probably say, "oh, you know, not as much as you think." but, in fact, what bob has really taught me as a journalist and as a thinker is that people tend not to tell the truth initially when you first interview them -- and it's not because they're always purposely not telling you the truth, but oftentimes, they don't really know what the truth is -- and that you do need to go back and back and back

, bill clinton signed into law the family and medical leave act. rick santorum and i, pennsylvania, wrote the legislation dealing with -- lamar alexander and i worked on allergy legislation together. premature birth, and the screen, afterschool programs. the point i want to make, i mentioned these names is because it wasn't that long ago that the republicans and democrats worked together on these issues. and it ought to be that way again. this is not a partisan battle. who cares about children is willing to stand up and come together. this ought not be an issue by going blue states and red states, people decided to want to make a difference in the lives of children. so we made a great deal of progress. at face children and families during those years. and as i prepare to leave the senate after announcing my retirement to 2010, i decide to take a look back on the work that had been done and to determine what would still be needed for children and families to do better. so we held a number of hearings with bob casey played an integral part during that year of 2010 during my last year in the
